Stepping out of my comfort zone

I’m in a cab on my way home from a fabulous event put on by my wonderful friend (and occasional employer) Barbara Jones of the One 2 One Network, and the awesome Catherine Connors of Babble. They hosted a really fabulous group of bloggers at Hotel Lola to introduce us to Sole Society and their gorgeous shoes.

Sole Society is like a personalized shoe subscription. You can sign up for free (you don’t even have to give any credit card info) and you take a very quick style quiz, choosing pictures of clothes and shoes that speak to you. Once you make your first purchase you become a member of the subscription club, and you get a selection of shoes to choose from each month. Each pair is only $49.95! And if you don’t want shoes in any month, no worries – you can always just skip that month.

I was allowed to pick a pair to bring home, and my first instinct was to grab a pair of flats, since they were adorable and exactly the kind of shoe I would buy.

But, this was an event! Free shoes! Why should I go practical? So, I chose the tallest, awesomest platform heels there.

I was surprised when I tried them on that I didn’t fall over. Despite having a five inch heel, the front of the shoe is about two inches high, so it doesn’t seem so bad. They’re absolutely the most stylish pair I own. I can’t wait to wear them out somewhere.

As long as there are no stairs.

Thanks so much, Barbara and Catherine. Great night out. And thanks to Sole Society for my new shoes!

UPDATE: I forgot to thank Barbara for taking that awesome picture of me and my shoes!

    It was great meeting you at the Sole Society event yesterday! I had no idea we picked the same pair, honestly you took the post out of my mouth, because I can literally say ‘ditto’ to everything! :-)

    LOL about not having any stairs around when you wear those out!

    @Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly: Seriously, most people I know have never even seen me in pumps, let alone serious heels! Should be interesting…

    Great meeting you too. :-)

    @Cara Robinson & @Denise Traynor: I agree! I think the angle makes my nose look thinner.
